Naperville Education Foundation
The Naperville Education Foundation raises and grants funds for programs that enhance and enrich the educational experience of Naperville School District 203 students. With the generous support of foundations, businesses, educational professionals and individual donors, NEF is able to provide financial resources that increase learning opportunities by supplementing school district budgets. NEF encourages creativity, innovation and excellence in our students by helping to ensure that every student in the district can take advantage of opportunities to make the most of their education.
NEF provides grant opportunities for Naperville 203 students or staff through our Annual Grant program. We help to assist at-risk students with various needs through our Kid Booster Anonymous Program. We provide healthy snacks to students who might come to school hungry through our Start the Day program. We meet the unique learning needs of our students by each schools self-designed Study Skills program. We serve as the fiscal agent for Business Incubator, facilitating philanthropic support for entrepreneurial education for our students at the High School level. We expand resources and opportunities at each school by giving an Annual Trustee Award, and – we manage and distribute various scholarships and endowments available to students in Naperville 203.
